Could you, your loved one or your client benefit from psychiatric evaluation, cognitive work, medication adjustments and compliance support, detoxification, observation or treatment initiation to prepare you for the next level of care?

Williams House at Lindner Center of HOPE, near Cincinnati, Ohio, offers an intimate and stabilizing residential environment for adults, age 18 and older, suffering with co-morbid mental health and addiction issues.

Our renowned multi-disciplinary clinical team uses state-of-the science technology, evidence-based treatment modalities and clinical expertise to stabilize and evaluate patients and make recommendations for the next identified level of care.

Similar to the way inpatient is like the emergency room for mental health, Williams House is like the skilled nursing facility, working to restore stability and rebuild the patient’s resilience, independence, and motivation. Williams House provides a balance of the safety that a patient needs to maintain this level of care while providing the opportunities and skills one needs to regain their independence.

Three main programs are managed by a highly skilled, onsite clinical team that assesses, observes and evaluates patients in individual therapy, group therapy and other daily activities.

  • 10-day Stabilizing Evaluation (mood stabilization, emotional regulation and medication management)
  • 10-day Detox and Evaluation
  • Add-on Neuropsychological Testing and/or Treatment Initiation

We treat a variety of disorders, as well as complex issues and co-occurring disorders. Our program is built to get to the root of these issues and treat each disorder both individually and together. Here are the disorders we diagnose and treat.

Who sees the most benefit from our programs?

The Williams House approach offers a clinical advantage for patients who:

  • Are experiencing their first behavioral crisis or have recently been diagnosed with a mental disorder.
  • Have struggled with long-standing mental illness and/or multiple diagnoses.
  • Struggle with disordered thoughts, emotions or substance use.
  • Experience intermittent or escalating behavioral crises.
  • Have reached an impasse with their current treatment plan.
  • Are facing difficulties at work school or home caused by substance or behavioral addictions.
  • Had their medications changed three or more times in an attempt to alleviate their symptoms.
  • May have multiple underlying issues that may not have been diagnosed yet.
  • Nothing seems to be working and the next steps are difficult to determine.

Milieu Matters

In addition to individual therapy, the Williams House milieu offers groups to enhance the process of stabilizing and evaluating Williams House patients. Williams House groups include enriched life skills, coping skills, interpersonal skills and positive psychology groups. The skills learned throughout those groups are then fully developed through application in experiential groups.

Williams House incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which helps patients accept painful experiences, identify values, and live a value-driven life. The higher acuity of patients is often directly connected to significant emotional pain. ACT is an experiential approach that introduces skills to help patients to become more psychologically flexible. Psychological flexibility is vital in learning how to respond to distress in ways that align with the patient’s values.

The highly skilled Williams House support staff observe, monitor, and interact with each patient throughout their stay. This gives the multi-disciplinary treatment team valuable information that informs the evaluation and ultimately determines the recommendations for further treatment.

Next Steps Guidance

So much more than a discharge summary, the stabilizing evaluation report, post a minimum 10 day stay on Williams House, brings together comprehensive insights from the patient’s treatment team and support staff. This comprehensive insight gathered during a patient’s stay provides you with a deep and wide explanation of optimal next step recommendations with their unique strengths and opportunities in mind. These recommendations outline treatment targets, influenced by the patient’s own key resiliency factors.

Williams House Is Ideal Setting for Lingering Psychosis

Lindner Center of HOPE’s adult residential services are designed to meet patients where they are in their treatment journey. One unique residential treatment track at Lindner Center of HOPE acknowledges a more sub-acute patient. Complex mental illness and co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorder can cycle into a break that may surface in acute psychosis. After the crisis is stabilized and more treatment is needed in a supportive environment, patients and families are often left with a gap in next-step treatment placement. Lindner Center of HOPE’s Williams House can fill this gap.

Lindner Center of HOPE’s Williams House unit offers stabilizing evaluations and therapeutic offerings in a safe and supportive residential setting for patients who are:

  • Recovering from their first psychotic break
  • Still coming out of psychotic illness/delusions or manic episode
  • In need of further medication management
  • At higher risk of self-harm; struggling with urges or chronic thoughts of self-harm
  • Emotionally dysregulated and exhibiting disruptive behavior
  • Challenged to participate in groups
  • Not currently responding to treatment
  • No longer meeting acute inpatient criteria
  • Not ready to return to work, school or other day-to-day

*Patients should be medically stable and non-violent.

For these patients, Williams House offers a residential setting and treatment team focused on further stabilization and evaluation for next steps. Groups for this residential population focus on enriched life skills, coping skills, interpersonal skills and positive psychology. The cognitive group skills are then more fully developed through application in experiential groups.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps patients change their relationship with pain. The higher acuity of patients is often directly connected to significant emotional pain. ACT works through skills to help patients to become more psychologically flexible.

Adults at Williams House work on:

  • Behavior plans
  • Group attendance
  • Motivation
  • Stabilizing current psychotic symptoms
  • Engaging in goal-directed or mindful activities
  • Increasing readiness for potential testing

Patient participation and progress in groups contributes valuable information to the evaluation and next step recommendations completed by the multi-disciplinary treatment team.

If needed, patient can be stepped up to acute inpatient care on campus.
